Who's ordering a 3.5L Ecoboost truck?

Just curious whom is either on the fence or going to order one of these new ecoboost trucks?

I ordered one. I have been running your tunes since my '09 V10 was new. You haven't by chance come across a way to allow the rear locker to work in 2wd yet, have you? I would be very interested to see what can be done with these new engines.

I'm going to get an F150 this fall after the '12's come out. Still undecided on the 5.0 or EcoB. Watching and reading everything I can to help my decision. Will use it for towing a travel trailer @ 7-7.5 K some of the time.

I ordered one back in January.
EcoBoost - Crew Cab - Fx4 - 3.73 electronic locker

I also am running a 5-Star tune on my '09 F250 5.4L since almost new. However, I'm scared to mess with tuning on this F150 with its complex, direct injection, dual turbo engine. It's one thing to tune a proven 5.4L but I feel this new engine needs to be under warranty for a while in my household. I hear that those Tarus SHO cars with the EcoBoost are running extremely well with a tuner and exhaust. I'm sure there's a lot to be had out of this little 3.5L, especially if you wrote a tune for 93 octane fuel...

I'll contact you for tunes after I get mine. I had such good results with my '08 from your tunes, it went from high 16s/low 17s in the quarter to now runs 15.50s.

I would be interested in the Eco-Boost if it came in a RCSB, and things weren't so tuff right now.

So I will just have to wait and eco-boost my 352

On the fence reading all the excellent posts on FTE! At present the plan is to order a 2012 Lariot 4x4 CRW or maybe the Platinum. Hope for more choices on Lariot interior besides the blonde wood? trim.
